The Yellow Wallpaper and The Awakening
It is a choice, but one made by what could be considered a caged beast forced into a corner. It seems that although science fiction is imaginable at high rates enough to give us H. Is it okay, at this moment to colonize a text with my perspective in order to challenge the death of a character, regardless of finding it right or wrong?

But, in looking at the cracks of canon one can sometimes catch a glimpse of something which we have hidden for the reason of keeping some of our shame as a culture. Allowing for so many women to go on living lives of boredom, domesticity, silence, and the many injustices one might have to face with in the private spheres, is something Americans and others have to cope with, and still endure. But literature is a laboratory — for academics and scholars, text is to us what numbers are to mathematicians, what chemicals are to chemists, what chromosomes are to biologists.
